Combining the burrows-wheeler transform and RCM-LDGM codes for the transmission of sources with memory at high spectral efficiencies
In this paper, we look at the problem of implementing high-throughput Joint Source- Channel (JSC) coding schemes for the transmission of binary sources with memory over AWGN channels. The sources are modeled either by a Markov chain (MC) or a hidden Markov model (HMM). We propose a coding scheme based on the Burrows-Wheeler Transform (BWT) and the parallel concatenation of Rate-Compatible Modulation and Low-Density Generator Matrix (RCM-LDGM) codes. The proposed scheme uses the BWT to convert the original source with memory into a set of independent non-uniform Discrete Memoryless (DMS) binary sources, which are then separately encoded, with optimal rates, using RCM-LDGM codes.
